The neoclassical Italianate architecture of Massena Museum was inspired by the Rothschild villa in Cannes. A very skillful restoration of the historic gardens was conducted in 2006-2007, which restored the original luster of the aristocratic mansion. The villa is surrounded by a courtyard, a French garden, and a great lawn. Wander past remarkable plants, such as the Magnolia grandiflora, Araucaria excelsa, Melaleuca, and Brachychiton populneum.

  • Ladies at the booking office are rude and arrogant, I've never seen such unpleasant people. They spoiled our visit at the museum. Don't recommend visiting this museum if you want to have a good time.....  more

  • Located in an Italian neoclassical villa built in 1898-1901 on the Promenade des Anglais. Opened as a museum in 1921. The ground floor has maintained the decor and furnishings of the Belle Epoque...

  • Surprisingly more interesting than I expected. Much more than the Residential Villa in golden finishing that I thought it was. It's a great trip through history. A storyteller of the City development into a holiday winter destination of North European aristocracy. Includes excellent examples of fashion jewellery, outfits and memorabilia. Highly recommended. The garden is also worth a stroll.
  • The Villa itself is impressive and large. There are 3 different floors with the top one being reserved for temporary exhibitions. I would warn people that most of the tour is in french which makes it complicated to understand what we are looking at. Otherwise great visit and fully worth the price.
